Simultaneous translation

30 Nov

Geoff Watts writes about the neuroscience of simultaneous translation.

“There’s been a lot of work on bilingualism. Interpretation goes one step beyond that because the two languages are active simultaneously. And not just in one modality, because you have perception and production at the same time. So the brain regions involved go to an extremely high level, beyond language.”
